I made this whimsical necklace using a number of antique and vintage elements including a filigree bracelet link and filigree box charm that I found in a Prague flea market, an antique pocket watch key and a lovely vintage crystal drop that I repurposed from a broken necklace. I finished it with a handmade chain of brass wire and new bronze toned glass beads made in the Czech Republic.
It measures 49.5 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp and 5.5 cm extender chain so that it can be adjusted to suit different outfits.
This necklace has been sustainably made using a combination of antique, vintage and new materials. The vintage and antique materials show some evidence of their age and former life in minor wear and a deepened patina. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
Handmade in Australia.
